Not dangerous, just beautiful this colubrid.
The Corn Snake or Red Rat Snake (Elaphe guttata) is a species of Rat Snake. The Latin word elaphe means deerskin. A corn snake suffocates its prey by wrapping its body around it. Constricting prey is a basic instinct for snakes and they will preform this action in the wild and in captivity. Like any animal its temperament and behavior is different for each snake. Corn snakes are generally docile and make excellent pets. Their average adult length is about 1.2 to 1.8 metres (4-6 feet) fully grown, and they can live up to 20 years. They are found throughout the south-eastern and central United States as well as parts of Mexico. The name 'corn snake' refers to the splotched pattern on its belly, which resembles Indian maize. Some, however, believe it is because they are often found in corn fields where they search for rodent prey. [Wikipedia]

The Ball python (Python regius), also known as the Royal python, is a ground dwelling, nonvenomous snake native to the savannahs and rain forests of western and central Africa, ball pythons can be found from Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia on the west coast, east to southwestern Sudan and northwestern Uganda.

Tens of thousands of ball pythons are annually imported into the U.S., mostly originating from Togo, Benin, and Ghana. The name ball derives from the animal's tendency, when stressed or frightened, to curl into a tight "ball" with its head hidden inside, often for long periods of time. The name royal (from the regius in the Latin name) comes, in part, from Cleopatra, who supposedly wore the snake around her wrist.

The ball python is typically light brown-green or black in color, with a tan-yellow underbelly. However, ball pythons come in many morphs, which are genetic mutations that alter the colors and patterns of the scales. Adults range in length from 1 to over 2 meters, with the average female reaching 1 to 1.5 m and the average male, 60 to 90 cm. A mature female will commonly grow distinctly larger than the male.

BTW: In Greek mythology Python was the earth-dragon of Delphi, always represented in the vase-paintings and by sculptors as a serpent. Pytho was the chthonic enemy of Apollo, who slew her and remade her former home his own oracle, the most famous in Classical Greece.

Very aggressive, very dangerous and its poison is definitely lethal. Most of the deadly incidents with snakes come from encounters with this snake in Africa (about 5000 - 10000/year)..
